Okay Message Film
Director Lupino did the best she could with the low budgets her producers coughed up, at a time when there were no other name women directors still working. The cast is earnest enough; Forrest became a pretty good actress by the end of her short film career, in While The City Sleeps (1956), then never made another film. The polio rehab sequences are interesting -- the patients even perform a square dance in their wheelchairs! Hugh O'Brien is touching as a 'victim' whose disease is too advanced for him to recover his walking ability. Also notable: Eve Miller as the pretty divorcee secretary in the real estate office where Brasselle works.
